Cleveland Rocks!

Welp, that might be the cheesiest post title I've ever written (yeah, probably not...) but with the first game of the World Series tonight and our team playing I couldn't not share something related to the city I love today. I'm not huge on sports but I will always root for Cleveland. I was downtown when the Cavs brought home the championship, and I'm looking forward to being there when Cleveland brings home another big, big win! I digress...

Last weekend was super busy. My nephew's first birthday party, photoshoots for upcoming posts*, a long exhausting hike at Whipps Ledges, dinner with my brother, and geocaching. I'm certainly not complaining, I love weekends like this. Staying busy is essential this time of the year when the sun sets SO early. I know it's still early in the season but I am already feeling the blues that come with cooler weather.

Sunday evening ended with a trip to the roof of one of Cleveland's most popular abandoned buildings. This spot was one of the first Jeff took me when we started dating. It was actually the first place we held hands! Awww! So despite not really having too many new photo opportunities, it holds a special place in my heart. That and it has one of the absolute best skyline views!

Sunsets never get old for me. I recently read about a scientific study that showed watching the sunset made people feel so full of awe that it slows down their perception of time. I've definitely experienced that time and time again. I love them so much, especially when I get to watch them with my friends in this city I love so deeply.

*I love how much fancier that sounds than what it really was - Jeff and I struggling to get a nice family photo with all three pets in front of a huge black table cloth. Hilarity ensued, photos to come! 😉

  1. These are perfect. The sunset through those broken bricks!? And the last one of Jeff!? Come onnnnn SO good!

    1. Thanks Jason! I'm so happy with how they turned out! We need to do more of this. We've really been slacking this last year.

  2. You take such magical pictures!!! <3
    I love sunsets too and those sunsets look so so very beautiful. WOW!
    Thanks for always sharing amazing pictures on your blog :)

  3. That sunset is so gorgeous! There really is something awe-inspiring about sitting back and watching the sun rise or set, even though it happens every day. I'm looking forward to the post of family photos!

    1. Thanks Kaili! :)

      I can't wait to share. I always have grand plans for getting photos of all the pets together...and it always goes all haywire. :P

  4. I love Cleveland! My friends in college used to make fun of me because I'd always tell them how awesome Cleveland was (I was in Cincinnati). I'm SO SO SO mad that I am in Russia. Of course I'd miss the the Cavs and now the Indians.

  5. So sad that the Indians lost. I'm down towards Youngstown. ☺️
